Found in building and other construction projects, hex cap screws are ideal for woodworking, machinery and mechanical repair. These screws have a hex head and washer face on the bearing surface, unlike the hex bolt which does not feature the washer face. Hex cap screws may have a built-in shoulder which increases the tensile strength of the bolt. Grade 2 hex cap screws are commonly used in noncritical applications where the fastener is not subject to extreme temperatures or stress beyond certain material strengths. Grade 5 hex cap screws have greater tensile strength and are designed for use in high stress applications. Grade 8 hex cap screws are still stronger for ultra-demanding uses such as in performance vehicles. The stainless steel hex cap screws are used in products that require general atmospheric corrosion resistance and outdoor applications.
